Last weekend my husband and I tackled painting our apartment bathroom...the transformative aspect of paint is really amazing. The bathroom before was beige and felt really bland and boring. Only a little natural light is let in, so painting it coral woke up the entire room. I snapped a quick pic to show you some improvements we've made. Above the medicine cabinet is a gold/white clamp light fixture from Ikea. It's really lovely against the coral color and it's utilitarian.
We also installed pretty lilac/gold knobs on the sink cabinet doors.
A quick spray of gold on the light switch itself turned out to be a nice little detail.
Currently looking for a little picture to hang on the left wall there.
I'll do a full reveal post within the next few weeks...I'm just so excited it's finally coming together I had to share a sneak peek :)
Bathroom color is Behr 'Coral Expression'
(the color in person is less orangey-red and has more pink tones)

Oh my goodness you guys! the kitchen wall looks really cool & I'm really excited about it!
Once the Carrera Marble paper went up I realized the existing kitchen paint color clashed "like alot" so it's going to be painted a pale gray to coincide with the paper. For now here's a little peek of what the paper looks like on my kitchen wall...
It's kind of wonderful!
I recently invested in a good quality camera and I wanted to share with you how much I love it!
It's a Nikon D3100. I haven't bought any fancy lenses yet, I've just been using the standard lense it came with. Honestly it works perfectly fine for me as is. I enjoy the lightness of it and how easy it is to handle...the quality of the pics come out nicely and are clear.
If you're in the market for a basic good quality SLR I highly recommend a D3100.
Below are some shots of my feline Sylvia taken with the camera.
Isn't she sweet?
I'll be painting the bathroom this weekend ..... stay tuned for the after pics!

Some of you may remember this post ,I was thinking of wallpapering my kitchen accent wall in a lovely gold floral wallpaper. I've changed my mind since then and I'm going with a Carrera marble contact paper on the whole wall. It will add freshness to the space as well as a classic feel.
A few things have changed in my kitchen since this photo was taken, but heres a mock up of what the Carrera contact paper will sort of look like.
Since I'm a renter, I figure I can live out my Carrera marble dreams with contact paper ;)
... and of course no post would be complete without some Pinspiration.
